I had been anticipating these donuts since before we left on our trip and had planned on going almost every morning but was so disappointed I only went once. Maybe the other flavors were better but it wasn't worth it to me to go back.

We ended up there two mornings in a row even though we were only in Charleston for 3 days. The kids were pumped to check this place out after seeing it featured on a few different tv shows like Eat the Street. The only disappointment was that we didn't get to try their specialty, The Purple Goat. What we did... More

The best glazed doughnut I've had!!!!! We went around 11ish so not much left after the morning rush. Had their cinnamon roll that was very very good too I'd definitely be going back next time in Charleston..... The Apple bacon fritter sounded really good but of course they were all gone & One of the employees said that's his favorite.

We were introduced to these amazing donuts as part of a Charleston Culinary Walking Tour, and fell in love ... hightailed it back on the weekend to stand in line with the locals for a chance at one of the classics - blueberry glazed, lemon old-fashioned, maple-bacon glazed - or one of the unusual specials - chocloate peanut butter, anyone?...

Coming from the north, this was definitely an interesting location. The homemade donuts are scrumptious! The maple/bacon donuts are something that should be transplanted to New England!

I had been so looking forward to trying out all the amazing flavors at Glazed but we were unfortunately not able to get there before 12pm on a weekday. They only had two options left by then! They were indeed delicious but I wish we had gotten there earlier. We asked the staff and they said that they sell out... More

This small shop was a stop on our chef's kitchen tour. We were treated to a couple of varieties of their doughnuts. Made with no preservatives, and in limited quantities, none of their donuts live more than 24 hours. When they sell out, they take down their sign and close the shop, so you really need to get there early... More

After viewing a great story about the business and the doughnuts on Food Network- Sinful Sweats- we visited to find "sold out" and "closed" at 9:30am. That is not a typo. 9:30am. Place looks great- go early. Real early.

I loved the doughnuts- we tried a London Fog cinnamon roll, the chocolate filled, and a chocolate iced. The doughnuts were definitely a cut above, the staff was cheerful and patient while we made selections but I have to agree with a fellow reviewer- if you could sell more doughnuts, why wouldn't you make more? We may go back tomorrow.... More

The staff at our hotel told us that Glazed was worth checking out and they were right. They have some interesting flavors - and the doughnuts were warm and delish! If you find yourself on King St in the morning, stop in for a bite and coffee. Hours are limited.
